The vote to demote Pluto occurred in the most Plutonian time in recorded history and was underhanded and highly contentious.
[A]stronomers are already circulating a petition that would try to overturn the IAU decision."
"[O]nly 424 astronomers were allowed to vote, out of some 10,000 professional astronomers around the globe."
"Pluto vote 'hijacked' in revolt... A fierce backlash has begun against the decision by astronomers to strip Pluto of its status as a planet."
"Pluto is the second-most complex, interesting planet in our solar system behind Earth"
"NASA Administrator Says Pluto Is Still a Planet, And Things Are Getting Heated" 
"NASA missions may re-elevate Pluto and Ceres from dwarf planets to full-on planet status." [still waiting]
I've been an astrologer in my home state of Massachusetts for over forty years. My journey began at 13 with Linda Goodman's Sun Signs; a brilliant book that awakened millions and kicked off the New Age.
The early 70s were a heady time, with great astrologers just bus stops away, so my older sister Anne and I headed to lectures with the likes of Isabel Hickey, Francis Sakoian and Oscar Weber. In 1974, astrologer Paul Guercio moved to our town and held intimate classes within walking distance. So off we went to expand our minds on cushy floor pillows.
In the early 80s Anne went off to make babies and I began a five year apprenticeship with Paul that became a lifelong friendship. In the late 80s I went off to make babies and Paul was approached by government physicist George Hart to collaborate on a programmed forecasting tool they called TimeTraks.. Paul had made astrological forecasts on radio for decades, so he and George took their show on the road as The Merlin Project, making political forecasts on tv & radio for over 25 years.
Paul always advised his students to keep it simple, so pregnant with my third baby and now computer literate, I followed his advice in 1994 and designed the FutureGraph™ and BirthPrint™, to simplify astrology and make it accessible to all.
Paul sadly passed in 2019 and his TimeTraks are no longer publicly available. Here is one of his earlier podcasts on how the future happens. Paul will be sorely missed by many.
I hope you're inspired to investigate astrology, a fundamental tool for humanity. Thank you for visiting. May you find what you're looking for.
